Simon Whitfield vs. Lance Armstrong: A Twitter Slapfest!

So, I saw in today's National Post that Lance Armstrong called the Olympic tri "a shampoo, blow dry, and 10 k foot race". Simon Whitfield is, of course, not impressed.

Triathletes out there, does Lance have a valid point? I'm not dissing triathlon, but if everyone is coming out of the water at roughly the same time and the favourites are drafting off of designated teammates for 40 kms, doesn't it really just come down to the run? Would a half-Ironman distance with no drafting be a better reflection of a true triathlete? Just wondering...
